Spring Flower at Greebank

This afternoon, warm and sunny, I cycled round to Greenbank Garden, south of Glasgow, to obtain some images with a flavour of Spring. To an extent I achieved my objective but have to apologise for image quality as I lost power on my principal digital camera and had to resort to the cellphone camera and hence poor quality of images.

I obtained a reasonable selection of images but, unusually for Greenbank, non of the plants photographed were labelled so I will have to leave readers to admire the diversity and colours.

Greenbank garden is attached to Greenbank House, an 18th century mansion. Both house and garden are owned by Scotland’s National Trust with the latter open to the public throughout the year. The garden is very well maintained and renowned for its diverse collection of about 500 daffodil types. The soil is clay, which provides a challenge for the gardeners.

I enjoy visiting at intervals throughout the year to observe the seasonal changes and variations in colours, which includes the surrounding trees and shrubs within the garden There is an aura of peace and tranquility.

Elsewhere today, my progress was interrupted by a break in Internet access notwithstanding which:

  • I undertook more work on an upcoming Scotland and Ireland tour.
  • Posted information on Grimmond family history to my Glasgow Ancestry blog.
  • Fine tuned an upcoming short tour of Edinburgh and Perthshire.
